Pope's Place

Pope’s Place provides individualized care for children and young adults with exceptional medical needs to strengthen them, their families, and the community.

This Place Changes Everything

Pope’s Place exists to provide support for families with the challenges they face in caring for their medically complex child or young adult. The types of support we provide include respite care, long-term or transitional care, and residential care. Our residents are children and young adults who require high acuity medical care and have mild behavioral needs. We are a team of skilled nurses, physical therapists, and social workers offering individualized, 24-hour care in a home-like setting. Our staff is dedicated to providing love, care, and support to our residents and their families.

Upcoming Events

38th Annual Buzzard Butt Buster Charity Ride 2024
August 8th-10th

All proceeds benefit Pope’s Place programs

The Buzzard’s Butt Buster is an annual motorcycle ride. The event is held each year around the middle of August with various destinations each year. The format is very informal with riders riding in small groups or by themselves. This is not a race. This is a three/four day motel to motel event with sightseeing along the way. The event kicks off each year on Thursday evening with registration, check-in and an informal gathering. Day two is generally about a 300 mile ride to a known destination. Upon arrival participants are free to kick tires, jump in the pool or just enjoy the company of fellow riders. Day three is much like day two heading to a different destination, however the evening of day three we hold a banquet and celebration of the year’s ride. Day four is your safe return home. The event is put together by a group of volunteers and as such has no responsibility for the participants in the event.
